The wedding was a raging success thanks to our family, friends and reasonably moderate July temperatures. Thank you all! We wish we could do this every month.

Meet our bridal party!

The ladies: Jessica (best lady), Michelle + Meghan  

Kathleen met this trio in her freshman year of college and they were instantly best friends.  They have traveled and lived in many different cites and states over the years, but always managed to stay connected.  When these ladies get together, anything is possible.

The gents: Eric + Dave (best men), Todd + Eric

Eric (best man) and Todd grew up with Andy, attending grade school together all the way through graduation at MSU!

Dave, Andy’s cousin, was like a brother growing up. Dave now lives in Los Angeles.

Eric and Andy met in college, and Eric now resides in Long Beach, CA.  Just a hop, skip and jump down the 405 freeway. 

Post party set! After the wedding we’re continuing the celebration at The Old Miami (3930 Cass Avenue).

Craft Party Time!  Kathleen headed to Michigan this weekend to complete the final group of wedding decorations. Thank you to everyone that helped at Saturday’s craft party and to those who continued puffing flowers at Sunday’s shower.  We finished 41 paper chandeliers and puffed countless flowers!  Special thanks to Dad, Uncle Kelly and Cousin Keith for all your set-up and clean-up help, and to the Moms, Kathy and Barb, for hosting the parties!
